Declaration of conformity
Raymarine Ltd. declares that the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng converter
is in compliance with the essential requirements of EMC directive
2004/108/EC.
The original Declaration of Conformity certificate may be viewed on
the relevant product page at www.raymarine.com
EMC installation guidelines
Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to the appropriate
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations, to minimize
electromagnetic interference between equipment and minimize the
effect such interference could have on the performance of your
system
Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC performance is
not compromised.
For optimum EMC performance we recommend that wherever
possible:
• Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are:
– At least 1 m (3 ft) from any equipment transmitting or cables
carrying radio signals e.g. VHF radios, cables and antennas.
In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased
to 7 ft (2 m).
– More than 2 m (7 ft) from the path of a radar beam. A radar
beam can normally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above
and below the radiating element.
• The product is supplied from a separate battery from that used
for engine start. This is important to prevent erratic behavior
and data loss which can occur if the engine start does not have
a separate battery.
• Raymarine specified cables are used.
• Cables are not cut or extended, unless doing so is detailed in
the installation manual.

Autopilot restrictions
Important: A SeaTalk autopilot or associated controller must not
be connected to the SeaTalk - SeaTalkng converter.
SeaTalkng is a proprietary extension to NMEA 2000 and the proven
CAN bus technology. Compatible NMEA 2000 and SeaTalk /
SeaTalk2 devices can also be connected using the appropriate
interfaces or adaptor cables as required.
There are restrictions as to how an autopilot is connected in a
system containing a SeaTalk - SeaTalkng converter.
• SeaTalkng autopilot (e.g. SPX course computer with ST70
controller) — This can be connected as part of the SeaTalkng
system in the usual manner. However any SeaTalk cable from the
autopilot must NOT be connected to the converter.
• SeaTalk autopilot (e.g. S1, S2 or S3 course computer with
ST6002 controller) — This cannot be connected to the converter,
nor to any device on the converter’s SeaTalk spur. A SeaTalk
autopilot will usually be connected directly to the multifunction
display.
Seatalkng
SeaTalkng (Next Generation) is an enhanced protocol for connection
of compatible marine instruments and equipment. It replaces the
older SeaTalk and SeaTalk2 protocols.
SeaTalkng utilizes a single backbone to which compatible
instruments connect using a spur. Data and power are carried within
the backbone. Devices that have a low draw can be powered from
the network, although high current equipment will need to have a
separate power connection.
Installation
17
3.2 SeaTalk - SeaTalkng converter
connections
• It cannot be linked to other parts of the SeaTalk system (it is an
isolated spur).
The converter connects in line as part of the SeaTalkng backbone. It
provides connections for SeaTalkng and SeaTalk devices.
• It must not be connected to any power supply.
SeaTalkng spur connections
These allow connection of a standard SeaTalkng spur, and form part
of the SeaTalkng bus.
Avoid data and ground loops
Important:
The converter must only be connected to either the SeaTalk or
SeaTalkng connections of any device, NOT both.
Converter power supply
The converter takes its power from the SeaTalkng bus and provides
power to devices on the SeaTalk spur.

3.3 Making SeaTalkng connections
Cable types and length
1. Rotate collar to UNLOCKED position (so molded arrows are
aligned).
2. Ensure cable end connector is correctly oriented, then fully insert.
It is important to use cables of the appropriate type and length
• Unless otherwise stated use only standard cables of the correct
type, supplied by Raymarine.
• Ensure that any non-Raymarine cables are of the correct quality
and gauge. For example, longer power cable runs may require
larger wire gauges to minimize voltage drop along the run.
Routing cables
Cables must be routed correctly, to maximize performance and
prolong cable life.
• Do NOT bend cables excessively. Wherever possible, ensure a
minimum bend radius of 100 mm.
D11827-1
3. Rotate collar (2 clicks) until it snaps into the LOCKED position
(almost one quarter turn).
Minimum bend
200 mm (8 in)
diameter
Minimum bend of cable
100 mm (4 in) radius
• Protect all cables from physical damage and exposure to heat.
Use trunking or conduit where possible. Do NOT run cables
through bilges or doorways, or close to moving or hot objects.
• Secure cables in place using tie-wraps or lacing twine. Coil any
extra cable and tie it out of the way.
• Where a cable passes through an exposed bulkhead or deckhead,
use a suitable watertight feed-through.
• Do NOT run cables near to engines or fluorescent lights.
D11828-1
22
Always route data cables as far away as possible from:
SeaTalk - SeaTalk ng converter
• other equipment and cables,
• high current carrying ac and dc power lines,
• antennae.
3.4 System checks
After connection of the SeaTalk - SeaTalkng converter it is advisable
to perform checks on the data shared around the system.
Typical checks should include:
Strain relief
Ensure adequate strain relief is provided. Protect connectors from
strain and ensure they will not pull out under extreme sea conditions.
Cable shielding
Ensure that all data cables are properly shielded that the cable
shielding is intact (e.g. hasn’t been scraped off by being squeezed
through a tight area).
• Check your GPS position. At a known location check that the
GPS position is accurately shown on all displays and appropriate
instruments.
• Calibrate wind, speed, depth etc. Ensure that instrument
data is accurate and is available at all appropriate displays and
instruments.
• LifeTag MOB functional test. Check that the LifeTag system
generates the appropriate warnings / alarms at all appropriate
displays and instruments.
• Autopilot test. Check that the autopilot operates as expected
and that heading information is available at all appropriate
displays and instruments.
All checks should be performed in a safe and familiar environment
and in accordance with the instructions supplied with each product.
